What's a decent roof aerial quote?

What I was quoted:

For a feed to a single point within the house, aerial included with mounting attached to chimney:

£129 standard digital aerial
£189 16dB high gain aerial on 10foot mounted pole
£269 v high gain 3meter long aerial on multiple 10foot mountings

Basically the plan was to get that done on the house in question and split to the rooms using:

and some coax cables and clipping it to the skirting boards myself.

however the aerial costs from the fitter seems a bit of a rip off when:

is available

comments welcome.

I'd say about £50 for the actual fitting and then whatever the aerial is on top, A decent aerial for freeview is about £40-50.
#2
Those philax ones seem highly rated unless you know of better ones?

And I do need a decent mounting + coax feed into the house...
#3
DAT 45/75 are good aerials..
#4
Televes DAT 75 TV Aerial £53 seems nice

Just need a fitter that'll provide the mounting (it needs to be high), coax, and fit it and run the coax without wanting to supply the bloody aerial!.

DAT 75 is a massive aerial, But IMO is one of the best!

That aerial may be overkill if you are in a reasonable signal area, you may finish up with too much signal, which can cause it's own problems.

You will also require a very sturdy mount for it.

You really need an aerial that is appropriate to your location.

BTW There is no such thing as a " digital aerial ", if any aerial contractor tries to tell you different, avoid them.


Take a look at the CAI website for reliable contractors.;-)

Called 7 people locally.

All had 1 thing in common, they wanted to provide the aerial no matter what.

Cheapest quote I got was £80.

All the roof installs seem to be £80 minimum for a ok to good aerial to one point within the house I was always going to spend £30ish on a 8way booster and cables to share the aerial signal throughout 4 bedrooms/lounge/dining room/kitchen/

So loft install with good aerial, protected too so should last:

8 coax outlet boxes to screw into wall/skirting boards from somewhere cheaper (£2.50 tvaerials.com)
